access IM People app
I've been having an issue with chat/sms integration on my EVO 3D. SMS is very straight forward - threads are formed when people text you and you get convenient notifications to launch the Messages app.
However I cannot for the life of me figure where to get to my google IMs. Sure, I'll get a notification when someone sends a message and wants to chat, and if I tap on it then I'm taken to the message thread (separate from SMS apparently, I didn't know that). But, if I close the IM "app" I cannot get back to the IM thread! It doesn't appear as a recently used application, and I've tried looking through the "People" contacts app and other apps to see if launching an IM conversation will bring it back. BUT TO NO AVAIL.
I do not want to have to install another freakin' app just to get redundant messages for Google IMs. The notifications are there, the message threads are there. But as soon as I leave to do other things with the phone it disappears in to thin air. What am I doing wrong?! Is it a bug?
Again, please do not recommend an app. I want do all of this with a native, built-in app if I can.
